Sylvia, have you ever heard of newspapers with these names?
Columbian - Commercial Advertiser
The obit came from the Genealogy Bank - and cited these two newspapers
which had the same death notice in 1818 (Broome, NY) . I did not
find these at the Archives site. I really wish I could put a "yes" on
the fact that I know these two papers existed - and where before. I
went through the town of Broome Cemetery books at the Old Stone Fort
yesterday but didn't find it but there are so many stones marked
unreadable many more I'm sure never marked or lost.
I believe you're on to something with Preston Hollow - the NC
researcher Justine and I liaison on rare occasions cites a couple
deaths in either Preston or Potters Hollow but we've never been able
to pin down the sources for his data since it came from his father.
If you compare the proximity of where Josiah Browns ended up - they
are all within a circle of the two.
8 miles to N Rensselaerville (numerous relations)
24 miles NE to Coeymans Hollow, NY (daughter Lois Brown Hinman)
30 miles NE to Coeymans, NY (daughter Edith Brown Merritt)
18 miles N to Schoharie (grandchildren)
13 miles N to Middleburgh (grandchildren)
4 miles E to Durham (grandchildren)
26 miles NE to Coxsackie (Stacy is buried)
3.4 miles SE to Brown's Mill Rd. (Stacy's Mill)
18 miles S to Jewett, NY (Zadock's family)
